Remembrance Day was marked by the municipalities of Fort Coulonge and Mansfield et Pontefract on Saturday morning, with a special tribute to Indigenous soldiers taking place towards the end of the service.
Over 100 gathered at the Fort Coulonge cenotaph for the service, where soldiers from CFB Petawawa joined the ceremony, guarding the monument, escorting those laying wreaths, and marching in the parade.
The service was organized by Pierre Bourassa on behalf of the municipalities. Having helped with it for over 10 years, he said he continues to do so in honour of the Second World War veterans lost within the last decade.
